Beginning Sheep Program on November 15, 2018

The University of Maine will be hosting Sheep 101, a new sheep farmers workshop, on November 15, 2018, in Piscataquis County at the Extension Office in Dover-Foxcroft. 
This free workshop is designed to educate new sheep farmers or anyone wanting to learn more about sheep breed selection, husbandry, health, nutrition, reproduction, housing, and handling. Dr. Colt Knight will go over basics of sheep production, and also provide insight into the lamb market in the USA. This workshop will cover basics in lamb preparation, especially some easy Do’s and Don’t’s that make preparing delicious leg of lamb easy. The workshop will end with a freshly prepared leg of lamb lunch/dinner complete with a carving demonstration.
Pre-registration is available online at
or by calling the office at 207-564-3301.
